Drivers & Restraints-
Surging Demand for On-the-go and Between-the-meals Snacks to Propel Growth
Hummus contains numerous vitamins, antioxidants, fibers, and proteins. As the demand for healthy snacks is rising at a fast pace, this product is gaining more popularity across the globe. People are demanding on-the-go and between-the-meals snacks. Also, millennials are set to contribute to the hummus market growth in the upcoming years because of their adoption of healthy lifestyles. As the product can be stored in refrigerators, consumers are more drawn to it owing to their hectic lifestyles.
However, the rising number of product recalls may hinder growth by lowering the confidence of people on a particular brand. The Food and Department of Agriculture (FDA) and Sabra Dipping Company, LLC, for instance, recalled 2,100 cases of the latter’s classic variant backed by potential Salmonella contamination in March 2021.
Increasing Adoption of Vegan Diet in U.S. to Help North America Lead the Market
- In 2020, North America earned USD 1.33 billion in terms of revenue. The region is set to lead the market throughout the forthcoming years because of the high demand for plant-based dips. This is happening on account of the adoption of a vegan diet. As per Veganbits, in 2020, there were around 1.62 million vegan people in the U.S. alone.
- Europe is anticipated to remain in the second position because of the high popularity of hummus in the U.K.
- In Asia Pacific, countries, such as China, Australia, and India are expected to contribute to growth backed by the higher acceptance of cross-culture foods.
- The Middle East is likely to showcase low growth as most people residing in the region prefer to prepare the product fresh at their homes rather than buying it from stores.
